Much hyped future city of Panvel is facing crucial problems not only in itsinfrastructure, but also in social reasons. Rising of prostitution as a profession is putting shadow over developments in the city. Though the local municipality is one of the oldest in the state, big investments and developments are happened in a short span of time and attracted people. The huge inflow of population into the city in turn changed the face of city. Market of prostitution is such a product of social change in the city.

Disturbance due to sex workers are increasing in the city of Panvel. Various places in Panvel have become the hub for sex workers and for its customers. It has become a common scene to spot these workers in bus stand of Panvel. Toilets in the west side of bus stand are a safe haven for them.

“Earlier it was a rare scene, but now it has become often to spot sex workers in Bus Stands and junctions of Panvel. They are usually coming from the slums that are near to the bus stand. The slums, bus stand and junctions are situated in the main roads” A resident of Panvel said. Though the market is working in shadow ofdarkness, they are even appeared in day times. They use to send comments oncommuters in the bus stand.

During the budget formulation, Panvel Municipality has separated a huge amount for the redevelopment of slums in the area. But to address the social problems created by slums are become need of the hour. As per the sources, most of these sex workers are turned into this profession due to many social reasons. Poverty and family setups are playing a crucial role here. Daughters compelled to prostitution by their own fathers are heartbreaking scenes for the city.

Though not organized, markets for sex rackets are increasing in the city. A source close to sex traders, says “there is a strong demand in the area, so the market is also developing explosively. Different vehicles are also allotted for transporting girls and customers. It’s a super business with good profits, but life these girls are miserable in the slums.” Though girls are brought from outside, main traders are inside the city only.
